WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
Dracula (Hull), the owner of the luxurious Hotel Transylvania, and his monster friends find themselves suddenly transformed into humans when they are blasted by Dr. Van Helsing’s (Gaffigan) mysterious new invention, the “Monsterfication Ray”, which also transforms Dracula’s human son-in-law Johnny (Samberg) into a monster. Now, the newly-human Dracula and the newly-monstrous Johnny must race across the globe to find a cure, before their changes become permanent…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
The fourth – and apparently final – movie in the Hotel Transylvania series mixes things up quite a bit, to a point where Dracula is no longer voiced by Adam Sandler (which must be a relief to some) and replaced by decent impressionist Brian Hull.
